There are special mitzvos applicable to snow days. What did you do today?
e.g. Shoveling to keep sidewalks safe; providing food to starving people, including children, etc.February 13, 2014 8:58 pm at 8:58 pm #1003367🍫Syag LchochmaParticipant
If you don’t mind a tangent – My first grader was told to write a letter of thanks to a community worker from whom she benefitted. She wrote a letter to her older brother thanking him for shoveling the sidewalk and keeping her shoes clean!
My husband goes out to the car well before I leave and turns it on so the heat will be full blast when I get to the car.February 13, 2014 9:07 pm at 9:07 pm #1003368golferParticipant
That, Syag, definitely belongs on one of the shalom bayis advice threads. What a thoughtful gesture! That warm car probably keeps you warm for the rest of the day.
Do you think that’s where your 1st grader’s older brother learned to take care of his family as well?February 13, 2014 9:14 pm at 9:14 pm #1003369🍫Syag LchochmaParticipant

yes, and it challenges me to reciprocate!

Let’s say I’m sure it wasn’t from me . . .February 14, 2014 3:15 am at 3:15 am #1003370ItcheSrulikMember
Here’s one that most people don’t think of: Getting a hot drink for someone whose job keeps him out in the snow. This morning there were a number of people in union square collecting for various worthy causes. When I went into the nearby Starbucks, three of them were ahead of me on line along with a gentleman who was buying them each a coffee.February 16, 2014 3:15 pm at 3:15 pm #1003371SaysMeMember
syag- ”Let’s say I’m sure it wasn’t from me…” wow that was out of character. That sounded like a line from the wolf of past, whom you used to encourage and tell not to talk about himself that way! If it wasn’t from you too, the lesson wouldn’t have stuck with him
